I noticed what was obviously a Marlin in the rack at a the local range store.
I was quite surprised to find it to be a Model 336 in 44Mag! It has very dark wood, like the 444 I used to have from the 1960's. Scoped with a Lyman 1.75-5x in a Savage mount. Action was smooth as silk. Just a little rust pitting near the end of the bbl, not on the muzzle.....
Yep ,, there are a few around :lol:

So did it follow you home? If you are not buying you might put up the info on the shop so another of the members can get a shot at it.
P.S. I have two of them and they are great rifles.

I have a 336 in 44 mag setting right behind me. There is a Bushnell scope on it. It has a AA serial number, I guess making it a 1965. It also has a straight stock and a gold saddle ring. This rifle, has a dark wood, but no bright shine, as has been typical in more recent times.
At first, I found the long stroke of the 336 action strange, with the stubby cartridges, but got used to it when I saw some of the groups. It is not the most accurate Marlin I have, but it will hold it's own for my intended uses. Highly recommended!
I have given up reality for Lever actions, Jeeps and have a wife that understands. It's a better world!

No, it did not follow me home.....I'm currently putting my funds together for another project, and couldn't let the 44mag interrupt me.....
I guess the appropriate place to post the info would be in "Rifles for Sale"....
BTW, this one also has the straght grip and brass saddle ring.....
